If you are keeping on the front edge of the science, it appears that issue has been conquored. Look on eurekalert. I think I found it on phys.org as well.

We cannot avoid global warming. It is a natural process. It has to do with the evolution of the sun and cosmos.
Did you know that another galaxy went right thru our own recently? Look it up. That surely has an effect on our own galaxy. But did this news make mainstream media? Nope.

While I reject the mindset that man again is at the center of the universe and harming it, I do agreed on the remedies. We should certainly be doing them, no question about it.

i also have a serious question on who actually made CO2 the warming culprit and where is the science to back it up?
A galactic interaction takes millions of years - it is impossible to attribute the warming of the last 100 years to an event of such long duration.
I researched Fusion about 6months ago - in some considerable depth. i cannot imagine that the technical difficulties have been overcome in 6 months since they have been lingering for about 50yrs at this point. The technology is reasonably robust - but it is the transfer from research based fusion to commercial fusion which will take 20-30years to develop. Fusion is demonstrated on a daily basis around the world, but never in a way which produces more energy than was needed to initiate the process. The current stage of development is to produce a reactor which overcomes this over unity payback and that means building a generator at least twice as big as the current reactors. Even then it will be many years before a commercially viable version becomes available.

It is not earth centric or even anthropomorphic to suppose that we can effect the system in which we live. It is plain common sense based upon empirical evidence. The example of the Ozone hole and acid rain should be all you need to prove to yourself that we are more than capable of changing our biosphere in radical and far reaching ways. There is nothing arrogant in measuring this and stating it.

OK, well, I have read that all the other planets are warming as well. Wonder what kind of fossil fuel they are burning.
And you are wanting me to find the link for it, because if I did, it would mess with your thinking on this?

Technologiy is not at it's apex at the current time.

We do indeed affect the system we live in, no doubt about that. I will not challenge you on that. But to think that warming is all our fault is rather abstract thinking and it puts man again in the place of the sun.


i have read that the ozone hole is closing.

Now I don't go to the GOP talking point sites because I am not GOP. I just it here and watch the science. I didn't see Gores movie because it still, to this day, costs money to see. And I will not pay for a mind-set that I did not choose for myself. But I did ask Gore's foundation to link me to site that show the science behind his claims, a request that was ignored. Why do you suppose that is, to ignore someone who really just wants to read the science behind his claims?

The other planets are not all warming, this is factually incorrect. Certain of the planets are warming and certain of the planets are cooling. this is all attributable to their own respective position within their solar orbit and localised climate conditions specific to their seasonal progressions.
The ozone hole is closing because we took action to stop pumping CFC's into the atmosphere.
No serious scientist claims that current warming is entirely attributable to CO2, there are well recognized cyclic influences playing their part and that is why we have seen a halt to warming over the last decade or so. Still we should have seen a drop in temps - which most certainly has not happened. As you can see - it is only the ill informed who attribute all warming to CO2.
By mentioning Gore and the GOP you show that you are not deriving your opinion from scientists and as such you have no credibility on the issue.

No such thing as "global warming". Climate always change no matter what.

Here is one small critique of Rutans cherry picking of data to conceal the actual trend;

Quote

One of the signatories to the letter about global warming recently published in the Wall Street Journal is aerospace engineer Burt Rutan. A recent post on WUWT features his exchange with Brian Angliss at Scholars and Rogues. According to the post Rutan, in an email to Anthony Watts, stated “I usually ignore these diatribes.” If you read the post he refers to, it’s abundantly clear that it’s not a “diatribe.”
Rutan also states



You can easily tell if someone is a true environmentalist, i.e. an advocate for a healthy planet – he is one who is happy to hear the news that the arctic ice content has stabilized.

My main question is about a graph which Rutan presents, but before we get to that, Mr. Rutan, I have to ask because we’re all so eager to know: on what basis do you claim that arctic ice content has stabilized? I’ll happily point you to my basis for claiming that it has not, that in fact arctic ice content has destabilized. Do tell us, Mr. Rutan — we’re all ears.

But what really piqued my curiosity was Rutan’s “research” on global warming. It strikes me as a “gish gallop” of the worst global warming arguments. Perhaps Mr. Rutan and I can discuss them some day, but at the moment what I’m most curious about is this graph on page pg. 35 of his pdf report:
Posted Image
It’s Rutan’s basis for for arguing that the statement “May, 2010 was the hottest May on record” is unimportant.
It seems that what he has done is take the temperature change from December to May, then expressed that as a percentage. He seems to regard the fact that the December-May increase hasn’t itself increased, and/or was unexceptional in 2010, as some sort of refutation of the validity or importance of 2010 having the hottest May on record.
Me personally, I don’t regard the fact that 2010 had the hottest May on record as especially meaningful. I do regard the fact that this record was the continuation of a trend as meaningful — May has been getting hotter. As has January. And February, and March, and … you get the idea.
What puzzles me, what I find completely mystifying, is why Rutan would regard the December-May temperature change as a meaningful indicator.
After all, if we plot December temperature (in blue) and May temperature (in red), we can clearly see that both have increased over the last century and more:
Posted Image
Since all months of the year have gotten hotter, we would expect little change in the annual December-May difference. So please, please, tell us Mr. Rutan, why do you regard the December-May difference as meaningful? I’ll be honest with ya, this claim strikes me as irrelevant nonsense.
One more thing, Mr. Rutan — you express the December-May change as a percentage. Percentage of what?

http://tamino.wordpr...ions-for-rutan/

That's right, he chose a completely meaningless indice to conceal the obvious trend in the data. Should we trust a man who would do exactly what he accuses others of doing in torturing the data.

How many other deception lie hidden in that 93 page monstrocity ?

Wait, maybe there isn't that much of a warming.

World’s hottest temperature cools a bit
Team of meteorologists overturn a reading from 90 years ago and make Death Valley the holder of the world’s hottest temperature

TEMPE, Ariz. – If you think this summer was hot, it’s nothing compared to the summer of 1913, when the hottest temperature ever recorded was a searing 134 F in Death Valley, Calif. But while that reading was made 99 years ago, it is only being recognized today by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) as the most extreme temperature ever recorded.
That’s because an international team of meteorologists recently finished an in-depth investigation of what had been the world-record temperature extreme of 58 C (136.4 F), recorded on Sept. 13, 1922 in El Azizia, Libya. The group found that there were enough questions surrounding the measurement and how it was made that it was probably inaccurate, overturning the record 90 years to the day it was recorded.
“We found systematic errors in the 1922 reading,” said Randy Cerveny, an Arizona State University President’s Professor in the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning. “This change to the record books required significant sleuthing and a lot of forensic records work,” added Cerveny, who also is the Rapporteur of Climate and Weather Extremes for the WMO, the person responsible for keeping worldwide weather records.

commentary to my post.

If they have been wrong about this, finding flaws in calculations and interpretations going back to 1922, what else surrounding the global warming issue might need to be adjusted? I hear the man that initially named CO2 as the warming culprit had faulty studies as well.

I really have no problem with climate change it's not like the planet hasn't done it before. are we the cause? maybe a little. it's a big world that has proven before it can take care of itself which scares me because it might decide it doesn't need or want us anymore. But anyway can chaging our habit of using fossil fuels and polluting the enviroment have an effect on reversing the current trend of global warming? these studies you site do show global warming and i'm fine with that but how much have we caused and how much can we effect the trend? If the planet is warming on it's own then this whole global warming caused by man scare is a colossal waste. Is anyone studing that what impact we can have? I think we need to move past the pointing fingers and figure out what the solution is if there is one.
